Nuclear medicine

Nuclear Medicine – Overview

In nuclear medicine, radioactive material (radiopharmaceuticals) are used for diagnostics and therapy. As part thereof, it is required to measure the activity of the used radiopharmaceutical in different phases:

  • for dosage of the radiopharmaceutical, i.e. before application to the patient. Measurement in dose calibrator
  • after application and accumulation in target organ, e.g. I-131 in thyroid.
    Calculation of thyroid uptake

Whilst working with open radionuclides, working places or employees can get contaminated. Contamination monitors are used in this case to detect contaminations and avoid their diversion.
